1  Re: I need new ideas!--please post your homemade Christmas ornaments in Winter Holidays by bigeyes on: December 10, 2008 10:31:59 AM
We love these elves made with wooden acorns (you can use real but we can't find them here) and pistachio shells.  We used a dremel to make a hole so we could screw in one of those little eye pin thingies for a hanger (and to hang onto while painting.)  Then used fine line paint pens to draw faces.  I sprayed with acrylic sealer afterwards.



I hope to have a better pic later, my dh took the better camera to work with him today and I cannot figure out the focus on this one.  Cheesy

2  Tiki TV Stand in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by bigeyes on: March 21, 2007 03:55:10 PM
We couldn't find a suitable stand for our tv, so my husband and I built one.
He used plywood and 4 x 4 posts to make a triangular stand with w shelves.  We had the tikis from Target (last year end of season sale 1/2 off!) and picked up hula outfits from Walmart.  We hung the skirts with finish nails, just slipped them over so we can pull them off when we need access to the stuff behind the skirts.  The flowers were also in the hula sets so we just stuck the stems through the space between the skirt and the plywood. Please excuse the moving mess on the sides of the photo.

Looks like I need to move that box back further since it's pushing the skirt out a little bit.

Cool

3  Re: 2006 Completed Costumes Scrapbook! (completed project pictures & links go he in Halloween Costumes by bigeyes on: October 29, 2006 09:31:15 AM
Finally got the PC costumes completed.   My son went pre-fab, and he'll have to leave his mask and knives at home when they dress up at school, but he's OK with that.  My daughter's fairy costume even passed muster with my hubby's previous (late) wife's family, so I'm pretty pleased with it.
Daughter was delighted and wanted to wear it all day yesterday.

4  Birthday Bug Cakes!!! in Dessert by bigeyes on: February 01, 2006 03:53:34 PM
So thanks to all my craftster buds, I was able to make butterlies, snails and centipedes for my daughter's birthday, and spiders for my son's birthday.  They were a huge hit, tho most of the kids threw the black licorice pieces away..ick.

5  Re: New spice, umm rack, err holders, um spice container solution??? in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by bigeyes on: November 28, 2005 08:11:24 AM
We have LOTS of spices.  We cook with LOTS of spices.  Our new apartment has a very little kitchen with very little cupboard storage.  So I came up with a different solution to the spice world....  stick 'em on the fridge.



The containers are aluminum watch part tins available in sets of 12 from Lee Valley.  I picked the biggest size (70 mm), and then stuck magnets (cut from a sheet) onto the back.  I would really like to find some stronger magnet and perhaps cement it on, as they do tend to fall off if someone brushes against them.



We wrote the names on the back with marker cause I can't tell what each are just visually...  But I love the way they look on the fridge. Everyone comments on them.

That is sooo cool! Not only are the containers cheap fom Lee Valley, you can do the whole fridge for a fraction of the price of a ready made magnetic spice rack!

Cool

6  Re:alteration ideas for a party dress in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by bigeyes on: December 11, 2003 03:17:25 PM
I've got some patterns for adding crocheted bits to clothing.  I've done this halter one.



It might make a pretty addition to the dress, so long as you know how to crochet!  The flutter sleeves or stretch lace are also good ideas!

I don't know if I'll use that for this project, but I'm interested in knowing more...

What all can you add crochet to?

Cool
